Nineteenth-Century Novelist Henry James Predicted Twentieth-Century Feminism

In 1914, a newly painted portrait of American novelist Henry James was attacked by a suffragette wielding a meat cleaver. It’s not clear whether the target was the painting or the novelist himself. It’s possible that the suffragette had been enraged by James’s 1886 masterpiece, The Bostonians, a work that rivals the writings of Ernest Belfort Bax as the Anglosphere’s most prescient nineteenth-century analysis of the doctrine of female supremacism.

Henry James (1843-1916) was, in the early 20th century, easily the foremost living English-language novelist; he was considered the writer who had brought the realistic novel to its highest peak of achievement. Born in the United States, James had spent much of his adult life in Europe, often depicting in his fictions the contrast between American and European character types. His novel The Bostonians explored how the zeal of Massachusetts Puritanism found expression in the movement for women’s emancipation.

In 1913, friends of James had commissioned John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), a respected American portrait and landscape artist, also a chronicler of the transatlantic social scene (and friend of James) to paint James’s portrait in celebration of his 70th birthday. After approximately 10 sittings, the oil portrait was completed to James’s satisfaction (he declared it “a living breathing likeness”), and was exhibited for the first time in early May, 1914 at the Royal Academy in London, a prestigious and storied privately funded centre for the promotion of art.

Germany [still] hates BME

Germany [still] hates BME
Here’s what you get when you search for “bme” in Germany:

The note says that they have responded to a legal demand to remove three websites (ie. BME) from the search results. When you click through to the info site, here’s what you get:

“A URL that otherwise would have appeared in response to your search, was not displayed because that URL was reported as illegal by a German
regulatory body.”

This is a process that the German government started back in 1999 (translation). To make a long story short, it is the contention of the German government, I believe incorrectly so, that BME must entirely block underage viewers from seeing anything on the site, and they want ModBlog shut down.

Lame.

BME is incredibly valuable for readers of all ages. If the German government wants to kid itself into thinking that people under the age of 18 don’t need information on body modification, it’s their hands that become bloody with the results of people who move forward without the opportunity to educate themselves — to say nothing of the political free speech issues. Not that Germany has ever been seen as a bastion of progressive politics.

Germany REALLY hates BME!

Germany REALLY hates BME!

Yes, it’s true… Germany has decided that BME is an abomination and, as I understand it, has made it illegal to access the site. I do not know what the penalties are, nor do I understand the specifics of the law. It MAY be legal to view BME if you are over 18. It is definitely NOT legal to make BME accessible to people under 18. I would like to ask you to continue viewing, supporting, and linking to BME as an act of civil disobedience, but that’s up to you. Below is the letter which I received, as well as the best translation I could come up with on short notice. You’d think they’d have to courtesy to send me a letter in English! If I didn’t speak enough German to sort-of understand it, I would have just tossed it…
